Forex Market Makers

In forex trading most deals are conducted over-the-counter (OTC). A forex broker acting like market maker quotes both a bid and a ask price in a currency pair. The broker sells to its clients when they want to buy and buys from its clients when they want to sell. It makes money through the  bid-ask spread.
 
Market maker's Advantages:
 
- Most MM forex brokers offer bonuses on deposit.
- Quotes usually are "smoother" and less volatile than raw ECN/STP prices
 
Market maker's Disadvantages:
 
- Market makers may trade against you, making money when you lose. Conflict of interest appears.
- MM Brokers may manipulate their price feed, hunting for your stops or preventing your take profit orders from executing.
- Some of them discourage scalping and arbitrage trading strategies, putting scalpers' account in "manual execution" mode.
 
Below is a list of market making forex brokers. Most of them offer ECN/STP/NDD accounts as well.
